Hi George,
This example is obviously a mess, but it shows the basic elements. The
labels may be placed manually using something like boxed.labels
(plotrix) with lines connecting the labels to the smaller countries.
If you want the labels within the countries you will have to use a big
graphics device.

countries=c("China","Bangladesh","Egypt","Indonesia","South Korea","Nigeria",
 "Brazil","Pakistan","Philippines","Vietnam","South Africa",
for(i in 1:length(countries)) {
